Tullamore parish

I think my view of God has changed drastically. From a distant to a loving father.

How did you hear about Alpha?

I was introduced to Alpha by Sr. Genny in 2011, I'd hadn't a clue what it was I just knew that a lot of people in our choir went to it.

How did you feel at the start?

It was a bit odd because I wasn't really used to questioning my beliefs and seeking a deeper relationship with God, but I got used to it in no time, and now I can't imagine my Sunday night without Alpha.

How did you view God beforehand?

I think before Alpha my relationship with God was very distant. I didn't see Jesus as someone I could confide in. As a Roman Catholic I was very used to going to mass and by-hearting all the prayers, but not knowing what they meant.

How do you view God now?

I think my view of God has changed drastically. From a distant to a loving father.

What did you learn on Alpha?

Previous to my experiences of Alpha I had already been keenly interested in the Bible. Alpha helped me put context to content. Alpha, for me was a chance to talk it out with people who had the same faith as me.

Would you recommend Alpha to others?

Yes! Alpha is brilliant if you want to explore your faith, even as an introduction to Christianity.
